The Peanut Butter Trap: Hate Is Such An Ugly Word is a unique story of racism and intolerance that is told from a rats perspective. This clever, perhaps controversial, book takes its audience on a journey into the life of a young male rat, named Joshua, who has not yet grown his whiskers. No, he isnt just any rat. In fact, Joshua and his family do not see
themselves as rats at all. His pressing curiosity about his world makes him a very smart young male. In his search for answers, Joshua doesn't understand how the privileged green giants can fear and hate his kind simply because of their outward appearances. Based on his looks alone, he is faced with what it's like to grow up different. In the darkness, instead of finding acceptance and safety, all he finds is hunger, despair, and fearall the while discovering what it's like to finally hate. In this human depiction of rats, the author shows that the rats want to have the same societal privileges and opportunities as the giants. Joshua and his family desire to have a safe place to live with access to all the good stuff that they like to eat. Finally, they just want to survive without the fear and temptations associated with the death and destruction that is hidden on seductive traps in all the dark places.
